    Thumbs up Germinating Highland Nep Seed

    I'll be receiving lotsa N. lowii seed in the mail soon(ish) and wondered if anyone has had experience with these.

    I've been told that high temps are the key to germination even in highland species. Is this really the case?

    Thanks in advance.

    Lots of successful growers swear by germinating even HL seed in LL conditions, then switching the temps later.

    I find seedlings very tolerant of temps, but not drought, and the reverse to be true for adult plants.

    I just have a problem getting them to germinate. Should they be treated with smoke water or something? I have some bical and amp seeds I am trying to germinate and so far no luck.

    I don't think smoke water will do anything, and neither will GA3. Bical seeds have extremely short shelf life, and amp...idk. I've never had much luck with amp either. I think Maybe I wasn't keeping them wet enough or something.

    Thanks PK. I hope to get some of these to germinate. They came straight from Borneo and have location ID.

    I think the best thing to do is send some of those seeds to me. I have experience and success in germinating highland nepenthes seed, and provide good highland conditions. The safest thing is to just send a bunch over here. Please. I'm begging! I NEED N. LOWII SEED!

    Whoops, did I say all that out loud?

    Are your bical seeds from Sri Aman? Cuz mine are. When did you get them? I got them end of March, and they were already 3 or 4 weeks old by that point (when I sowed them). I have no germination yet.
